International Jazz Day
International Jazz Day is a yearly event on April 30, organized by UNESCO. International Jazz Day aims to bring together communities, schools, artists, historians, academics, and jazz enthusiasts all over the world to celebrate and learn about the art of jazz, its roots, its future and its impact. Jazz is a unique musical style that originated in the southern part of the United States of America, but has its roots in Africa and merges both African and European music traditions.
National Honesty Day
National Honesty Day is celebrated on April 30 in the United States to encourage honesty and straightforward communication in politics, relationships, consumer relations and historical education. It was invented by writer and former press secretary of Maryland, M. Hirsh Goldberg. The last day of April was chosen to contrast with April Fools' Day and to celebrate the anniversary of the inauguration of George Washington on April 30, 1789.
